The Finnish Metal Awards gives the public the chance to vote the best of Finnish metal in 2009. The voting began on November 1 at www.imperiumi.net/fma.

The Finnish Metal Awards gala will be held at the Cable Factory on Saturday, February 20.

In addition to the consumer aspect of the event, the Industry Day gathers the metal industry people from all over the world. The Industry Day will be held at the Nosturi club, one of the main music venues in Helsinki, on Thursday, February 18. Topics and guest speakers will be announced soon.
